  • SemiConductHer Lou from Southie (@SemiConductHer) reported

    @BlizzardCS FIX THE PS5 join party issue. Literally no one on ps5 can squad up with their friends on overwatch 2. Are y’all even aware of this issue yet? It’s all over your forums.

  • RealXert19 Xert19 (@RealXert19) reported

    moira is such a disgrace to overwatch it's not even funny, broken, easy character with 0 counters. and isn't she supposed to be a healer?... and let's see mercy has the most dps in the game with her tiny *** pistol and brig just ruins the game period all support hero's btw...

  • lucid42069 Astral (@lucid42069) reported

    @BlizzardCS what's with all the server errors in Overwatch? I've had about 4 comp games close tonight because of server errors 😕 and other tweets suggest it's been happening for two days. What is going on?

  • HelloPrimcey Primcey 👑 (@HelloPrimcey) reported

    Overwatch is so broken. I played OW this morning, but after a break I can't even connect? I've logged in and disconnected way to many times. It's ridiculous. I just want to play Mercy ffs

  • BackupSio Sio but I am bored (@BackupSio) reported

    @funnygames100 @SamitoFPS The thing is there’s no casual content creation for Overwatch despite a huge amount of casual content for it. Also balance is just like part of the problem, there are more issues that divide content creators from the rest of the community.

  • RINGT4IL Ringtail 🦝💜 Vtuber (@RINGT4IL) reported

    @CptTopper >Often< Not as often as live service games like say, Fortnite, Overwatch, etc. I very much hope they don't leave the game as bug-filled as it is, but seeing the state of the last few games on Switch (The ones made in-house, not outsourced) doesn't give me much hope.

  • m_aggi_3 Maggie (@m_aggi_3) reported

    @BlizzardCS so my partner isnt able to join my group in overwatch and does get the invitation but when he accepts it does nothing what could be the issue?

  • godsworstposter new here (@godsworstposter) reported

    If you play overwatch and you think Moira is broken youre a ******* bot. Been playing since launch and not once have I felt like a Moira was kicking my ***, cant even tell you the last time I saw a kill cam from her perspective.

  • hafizullina30 hafi (THE Oxford Dictionary) (@hafizullina30) reported

    @ryantomo96 @OverwatchNaeri remember when overwatch wasn't a live service game? I do. idek what was wrong with torb cause I mostly play comp.

  • GirlyWolfPup Wing Wolf (Pay Me To Draw) 🏳️‍⚧️ (@GirlyWolfPup) reported

    Wumpa League is trending so reminder that if you're the kind of person who shames people for playing Overwatch because "how dare you support Blizzard" but then get excited for new Crash games, you're legally a hypocrite.

  • hopem2tt bigshartz420 (@hopem2tt) reported

    overwatch 2 comp game just shut down for me for an unexpected error, third time today, really frustrating since you don’t even get priority requeue from it

  • yayopill yayo (@yayopill) reported

    not sure why any blizzard game i play i have to use a VPN on or i will disconnect overwatch, wow, and mw2 all are affected even if i play mw2 on steam. it's unplayable

  • GirlyWolfPup Wing Wolf (Pay Me To Draw) 🏳️‍⚧️ (@GirlyWolfPup) reported

    @LordNPC99 ya know it's even funnier because Overwatch 2 is a game you can play without spending a cent meanwhile Crash games require purchasing them In my opinion, you're free to enjoy both. I'm merely saying it's hypocritical and shows that some people only pretend to care-

  • CodeKaijju Code Kaijju 🐀 (@CodeKaijju) reported

    Love actually jumping through hoops to play overwatch I just had to get a friend on PC to invite me and my other friend so we could play bc invites on console have been broken for like 3 days now

  • jaybeazle67 Jaybeazle67 (@jaybeazle67) reported

    I need some serious help. I can play overwatch 2, and apex just fine on my PC, but not modern warfare 2. I went and signed into my account on my daughter's PC and downloaded #MWII and no crashes, just when I play on my PC, what is the problem can anyone tell me?

  • RogueGamer97 Rad Zap (@RogueGamer97) reported

    @KitsuneX1903 @DragonxllGolden @overwatchleague I didn’t choose to give them anything you don’t see the issue that they promised everyone who watches 30 hours of overwatch league play offs and 3 hours of overwatch league grand finals on YouTube you get a bunch of skins and awards they half assed it and only gave us half.

  • Kai_M17 Kai M (@Kai_M17) reported

    @ObviousThrower @overwatchleague Kiriko and junker queen should be available as of yesterday. Sojourn will not be available until season 2. The owl tokens are being calculated and no word when it'll be fixed. It's a @YouTube gaming error not overwatch.

  • SemiConductHer Lou from Southie (@SemiConductHer) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent FIX THE PS5 Overwatch 2 issue. Literally no one can play with their friends

  • keatonsagert Keaton (@keatonsagert) reported

    @overwatch fix your game all I wanna do is play some games with @willemjferriss and this useless ******* game won’t let me join him or visa versa #overwatch

  • Lois_Luthor ⍟ Melissa ✪ (@Lois_Luthor) reported

    @BlizzardCS After the Overwatch 2 mid season patch update some of my skins are gone that were there before. Such as Tracer's Slip Stream skin and Bastion's Overgrown skin. It's like all of the skins that were unlocked from OW Origins, Game of the Year etc are gone. Please fix!

  • MegaMilkMax 🥛 (@MegaMilkMax) reported

    Lagging on widow is fun. Its either someone is streaming porn rn, or overwatch 2 doesn’t like it when i pick widowmaker. Cause i swear this isnt a coincidence.

  • sleepykito_ kitoooo🍃 (@sleepykito_) reported

    @munosnail and people said overwatch 2 had problems

  • Husso37145615 Husso (@Husso37145615) reported

    @Ewuch98 @CODMW2Informer If it’s crashing on your first game then remove the shield from your classes and the overwatch perk from your classes and that should stop your crashing problem

  • KaydePrim Kayde (@KaydePrim) reported

    Does anyone else have ping issues specifically in overwatch?
